SATA III offers roughly double the transfer speed options of SATA II

SATA III can transfer at 600 MB/s (with RAW Bandwidth of 6 Gbits/s)
SATA II can transfer at 300 MB/s (with RAW Bandwidth of 3 Gbits/s)

Essentially, SATA III offers the options of drives that can have faster read and write speeds which translates to great performance and load times.

It's mostly noticed with SSDs because they can actually reach that level of performance.

If you have a SATA III capable system, you are doing yourself a favor by using that over a SATA II drive.
